yosemite national park

inspiration

kelly and dave exchanged vows in an outdoor ceremony on the quiet lawn of the historic ahwahnee hotel in majestic yosemite national park, california, surrounded by enormous granite cliffs, rushing waterfalls, clear streams and giant sequoia. design inspiration was drawn from an old collection of miniature souvenir postcard images of yosemite valley, the couple's wedding motif—a lavender silhouette of a bird on a branch—and the life and writings of naturalist john muir (1838-1914), specifically this passage from the yosemite (copyright 1912), "down through the middle of the valley flows the crystal merced, ...into this one mountain mansion nature gathers her choicest treasures, to draw her lovers into close and confiding communion with her."
